FDA issued a guidance document covering GMP requirements for Phase 1 products. These guidelines remove some of the problems that are encountered with early phase products and are in addition to those that cover the CMC sections for IND submissions at Phase 1.
Although the guidance appears to remove the need to follow GMPs for Phase 1 products, the need to follow GMPs is still present in the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Thus the nature and extent of GMP-related activities will depend upon the nature of the investigational drug and the extent of the study that is planned. This presentation will review the GMP guidance document and discuss how it may be integrated with the recommendations of the guidance documents on CMC requirements.
